Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Backup Warnings – Clarification Needed

  • Probably simple to for the more experienced to answer….. so I ran my first backup (just to file) and it concluded listing a couple of warnings (see toward bottom of partial log below).

    Does this mean my backup in incomplete or will not work if I require it?
    How do I repair these issues, I have no idea what they mean?

    Would appreciate any feedback, thanks in advance.

    It just means that the “mysqladmin” folder was not backed up, this is a database tool that doesn’t need to backed-up. By the way, you probably shouldn’t leave that up on your website, as a lot of hacker bots will try to find this and brute-force their way into your database.
